    Jim Ross Blog

    Jim Ross posted a special Christmas edition of his blog with his latest thoughts in the world of wrestling. Here are a few of the highlights:

    On the Long Term Future of WWE: The long term future of WWE appears to be bright to me. The company has a strong infrastructure manned by some intelligent, hard working professionals and have continued to take positive steps in putting their footprint around the Globe.

    On his current prediction for the Royal Rumble: My early pick to win the 2011 Royal Rumble would have to be John Cena. (One of my favorite Rumbles as a broadcaster was working with Taz on his first Rumble PPV.

    On the Vickie Guerrero Segment from Raw: Strong feelings have been expressed by many individuals both enjoying the comedic exchanges and vehemently opposing such. Personally, I find various things funny. I used to always laugh at ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’ when they featured plus sized women slipping and falling on ice, etc. For some reason, large ladies taking a bump made me laugh. Does that make me a bad person? To some, it does. To most, I would like to think , it only says to them that I have a sense of humor. Taste is a tough one to regulate. I’ve seen many, many things on pro wrestling TV show s over the decades that I could not and will not endorse. However, the ‘villainous” TV persona of Vickie G getting her comeuppance via one liners ala a ‘roast’ did not offend me, personally. Which is not to say that every one who reads this should feel the same way.

    On the differences between working with Paul Heyman and Randy Savage as Announcers: Paul Heyman and Randy Savage were totally different broadcast partners for me. . . Nonetheless the two men were very different in many ways. Savage brought a wrestler’s mentality to the broadcast table whereas Heyman came as an antagonist broadcaster with a more manager-like mindset. Jim Ross also gives his opinions on Booker T as an announcer, the newest Legends Roundtable for WWE on Demand, the coaching situation at the University of Michigan, and much more.
